Question about numbering entries

Post by nitro322 »

Would like to get some quick clarification on how to number entries, please. I recently added this dump:
https://datomatic.no-intro.org/index.ph ... 102&n=1359

And was told that new dumps without a scene release should be numbered z###, and that this one in particular is supposed to be z114. Easy enough, but couple things I don't quite understand:

1. When submitting a new game, it automatically sets the number to (I'm assuming) the next available number for that console. How do I know what the next available z### number is? I don't see any relevant options on the Main submission page to indicate it should use that numbering format to populate it automatically.

2. For my particular submission, I can edit the dump I posted, but I don't seem to be able to edit the main, top-level part (which is required to change the number). Is that normal? Attaching screenshot of what I see for reference.

Okay... I appreciate the fix, but I'm trying to understand *why* it needed to be 114 so I can do this correctly next time. Can anyone answer at least my first question? I understand that, failing everything else, I can at least post here for a fix if my permissions are not correct, but I'd rather avoid that situation to begin with.

ahh, that's perfect. Thanks! For whatever reason I don't have the same permissions as you to edit, but I'm guessing that's intentional since I'm new. No worries, can post in the forum if I need anything like that changed again.

Appreciate the pointers.
